Tell us about your weirdest Carding encounter

Around 2:30 pm today, I spotted a very nice looking SLK near Best Buy. A rather distinguished looking gentleman was getting into his car. I pulled up next to him, in my SLK. I greeted him and he said hello. I started going through my wallet so that I could “card him”. I said “Let me give you something”. He answered by saying “I don’t want to see that”, and proceeded to get into his car.

If you are here sir, I want to say that your rudeness and arrogance was completely uncalled for. People like you do not deserve the slightest bit of goodwill towards men. I would say good day to you but quite honestly I don’t feel like you deserve to have one.

I see a private message in my future. So be it. I had to get this off my chest,

Other than that, a fine day to be the owner of a fine automobile.

My turn....

I was riding my bicycle past the YMCA in town and saw an slk i had not encountered before. I make a u turn on my bike so I time it for when she exits the car. With 'card' in hand, I say 'hello' and she runs back into her car, locks the door and starts shaking her head...no.no.no. as if i was some hideous monster. well maybe I am
That was my weirdest encounter carding someone.

They all run when I approach.
If they run away from the car I leave a card on the window.
If they run toward a uniform, I engage invisible mode.
